Well, I just got finished watching all seven seasons of Deep Space Nine. And my memory was indeed correct. I liked it better than TNG almost 15-20 years ago, and I still like it better today.
In my opinion (humble as it is), TNG hasn’t really aged all that well. DS9, on the other hand, still seems as fresh today as it did when it originally aired. I found most of the “secondary” characters on the show (Rom, Nog, Dukat, Damar, Kai Winn, Vedek Bariel, etc.) to be far more enjoyable and entertaining than the entire casts of Voyager and Enterprise... COMBINED!
So… WHERE’S THE LOVE FOR DS9?!
I am with you on this one. I love DS9. I enjoyed TNG, TOS, VOY, and ENT. But, DS9 is still my favorite. I think DS9 had the best secondary characters of all the shows. We watched Nog and Rom grow to be full as a main character.
I thought DS9s villains were great. Dukat is my favorite villain. He is so good, he has fan sites. I read a star trek magazine calling Dukat the most complex villain in all of Star Trek.
You can keep the Enterprise. I’ll be on the Defiant.
Thanks for letting me vent.
